How to behave on the DVTk.org websites

The DVTk Community is well known for it’s friendliness and willingness to help those who need it. In order to keep that reputation, and to be able to act on those instances where the reputation may be damaged, we have made a set of simple rules every member should abide by. This DVTkquette applies to all members at any time, on every part of the DVTk.org websites. Registration for this website and/or use of the DVTk websites constitutes as agreement to these Terms.


Text – Do not spoof or post misleading text in, or it will be removed.
Images – Please do not use images in your signature, they distract from the main content of a post.
Sizes – Please do not change the size of the signature text.
Length – Please keep your signature to no more than three lines. We know this depends on the size of someone’s monitor, so if it’s more than three lines on kerz’s monitor, it’ll get removed :).

General Posting Guidelines

Cross posting – Please post your topic to one forum only. If it needs to be moved, alert a moderator.
